High School Jumpstart Competition is a business competition open to all students attending high school in the state of Utah (grades 9-12). Individuals or teams can submit entries. The competition fosters and promotes business growth at the high school level by giving students a chance to organize, direct, and present a business idea to a panel of expert judges. This contest provides teams with an educational forum to prepare them for the competition and will aid them in the creation and implementation of their business plan.

A cash prize of $1,000 ($500 in scholarship to Weber State University) will be awarded to the team judged to have presented the most plausible and promising business idea or opportunity. Cash prizes of $750 ($500 in scholarship to Weber State University) and $625 ($500 in scholarship to Weber State University) will be awarded to the 2nd and 3rd place individuals, respectively.
